Clark County's Neighborhood College is seeking residents interested in learning how County government works to better serve their neighborhoods and the community.

Neighborhood College is a free, 10-week program of interactive workshops and hands-on learning experiences conducted for Clark County residents by subject matter experts from various County departments and agencies. Session topics include, but are not limited to: an overview of government, transportation, human services, public safety, public works, civic engagement, and code enforcement.

The class starts Sept. 12 and will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays for ten weeks. Each night will begin with an informal "Power Hour" from 5 to 6 p.m. for networking. There will be no class on Oct. 31, and that class will be made up on Nov. 1. The classes will be held at the Clark County Government Center at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway.

"The County's Neighborhood College program is ideal for anyone interested in learning about how local government works and the issues we face every day," Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak said. "I encourage anyone interested in this program to apply today."

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 12. Class size is limited, so interested residents are encouraged to apply soon.
